Creating murals and installations that envelop exhibition rooms, the work of artist Heeseop Yoon has a gestural quality that belies its material. And you’ll never guess what was used to create this large-scale mark making—masking tape.
Based in New York, Yoon creates artwork about “memory and perception within cluttered spaces.” Beginning with photographs of cluttered interior spaces, the artist then works through a drawing phase, visualizing and re-visualizing the image into abstraction.
